After your windshield has been damaged, such as from an accident or a projectile hitting your windshield, you have to choose between repair and replacement. Today’s windshields are designed to be repairable. Also, injections containing resins are applied where the cracks in the windshield are.
Some cracks can be easily repaired, while others are difficult, and have to be repaired fast or they may result in damaging your windshield at a faster rate than you may imagine. Let’s say that there are several cracks on the edges. If those cracks are not repaired fast, the cracks will weaken your windshield, and they will start spreading faster as time progresses. The presence of these cracks will effect your vision and focus while driving making your experience more dangerous and unpleasant. The windshield is the eyes to your vehicle and it is very important to make sure you can see properly. If you wear glasses and they were to crack do you think you would just deal with the cracks or would you go and get them repaired? I am sure it would be the latter.
However, there are also cracks which cannot be repaired. In most cases cracks that are less than 12 inches, should not be problematic to repair. However, for cracks exceeding 12 inches, replacement is the mostly the only option.
Repair can also save you money. Your insurance company won’t pay the entire bill for the replacement, but it will pay the entire costs for repairs.
The price for windshield repair depends on how big the crack is. So you should first consult a glass consultant, and he would be able to tell you what the best option is.
